“Every blood drive has received a good response from employees and citizens, evidenced by the more than 100 units donated,” Puchong said. “We have not advertised, so it has been word of mouth that has led to an increase in the number of people donating blood.”

This marks the fourth consecutive year Central Festival has run blood drives. Red Cross officials advised people can donate three times a year.
